Note from Bill Kolb
CHAIRMAN & CEO MCCANN WORLDGROUP
I am thrilled to share the fantastic news of our most recent industry recognition across our network and regions. The power of our network and the strength of our individual offices continue to contribute to our success in 2021.
First, McCann Worldgroup was named the #1 Most Effective Network in the WARC Effective 100 Rankings for 2021. The WARC Awards are important because they, along with the Effies, are the two most coveted awards that measure effectiveness in our business, which is central to our role in helping clients earn a meaningful role in people’s lives.
Our team at FP7 McCann Dubai was named the #1 Agency in the WARC Effective 100 rankings. McCann New Delhi, McCann Moscow, McCann New York and WMcCann Sao Paolo all landed in the Top 50 most effective agencies.
In addition, McCann New York, McCann London and FP7 McCann were ranked in the top 50 Most Creative Agencies on the WARC list. FP7 McCann Dubai also ranked #9 on the WARC Media 100 list.
We have great news from the 2021 Effie Awards in MENA, India and the U.K. First, our teams across FP7 McCann MENA worked together on another dominating performance at the 2021 MENA Effies, wining an incredible 75 total Effies. Most importantly, FP7 McCann Dubai was named Agency of the Year for the 8th consecutive year and FP7 McCann MENA won Network of the Year, also for the 8th consecutive year. Amazing!
Dubai was named Agency of the Year with 1 Grand Prix, 16 Gold, 34 Silver and 14 Bronze – and our teams from McCann Health and Momentum also added awards. Our teams in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Tunisia, Kuwait, Qatar and Lebanon all contributed to our Network of the Year honors.
Next, McCann Worldgroup India was named Agency of the Year at the 2021 Effies India Awards. This is the 4th year in a row our team has earned this honor. Our offices in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore combined to win 1 Gold, 9 Silver and 20 Bronze.
Last month, our teams at McCann U.K. won the Grand Effie, 2 Gold and 3 Bronze at the 2021 Effie Awards U.K. And McCann Manchester brought home the top honor, the Grand Effie, for our client Aldi U.K. in recognition of “10 Years of Sustained Success.”
Please join me in congratulating FP7 McCann Dubai on earning such incredible recognition at both WARC and the Effies, our teams in India and the U.K. for their Effies performance, and all the teams from every region across our network who contributed to our success. Awards like these, so important to our clients, continue to cement our reputation as the #1 most creatively-effective network in the industry.
Let’s all keep up the great work and we will be able to look forward to an even more successful 2022.
Thank you for all you do every day. And, as we watch the latest news about Covid-19, please stay healthy and stay safe.
